iOS: Okta Safari extension

On iOS devices you can use the Okta Safari extension to sign in to apps directly from Safari without having to open Okta Mobile.

Before you begin

  • Check if you use Okta FastPass, open Okta Verify and tap your account. If Okta FastPass has a green check mark, your organization uses the Okta FastPass sign-in method.

    If your organization uses Okta FastPass, you can’t use Okta Mobile. To access your applications, go to the Okta Dashboard in the mobile browser, or tap Open dashboard in Okta Verify.

  • You can set up the Okta Safari extension on your device only if it's configured by your system administrator. If you are the system administrator, go to Okta Mobile Safari Extension.
